99 WJ swap from 247 trasfer case to a 242

I have a 99 Grand Cherokee with a 247 quada drive transfer case that needs replaced. I'm having problems finding one. I have found a bunch of the 242 transfer cases. I was wondering how hard it is to swap them and what all parts need changed. Any info would be appreciated. This is the first Jeep Ive owned so not to familiar with them.

The NV242 can be swapped with ease, but you will need at least a different rear prop shaft and maybe also an other front prop shaft. Also the shifter assy is different.

I thought my 247 was bad, come to find out my front diff was shot. A 242 is easy just need different length drive shafts
